Our Healthcare costs are growing rapidly. Not only due to our ageing society, but also because we have more and more possibilities to heal and care. To keep the system affordable more innovation is needed. Focus on Digital health is therefore an important strategy for the Nijmegen region and one of the 5 economic focus points of the Municipality of Nijmegen.
Think of artificial intelligence, eHealth, remote care, sensoring and many other digital solutions. In this meeting prof. Judith Prins and Tom van den Belt from Radboudumc explained why this topic is important for the region. They showed some of the research that has been done in eHealth. Furthermore, an entrepreneur who is currently succesfully implementing Digital Health solutions on a larger scale, has told about his experiences.
Like previous years, we finished off the February meeting with a number of short pitches by student companies from Radboud University panorama Science track.
